Default Water pump day on the L200

I replaced my waterpump today and I wanted to review the $15.95 chain holding tool from Amazon. The tool works great, easy to use and held the balance shaft chain in place. I also replaced the thermostat since I had the fans on high with the open thermostat code. The problem wth the thermostat was the rubber seal was torn letting coolant flow with the thermostat closed. I will finish assembly tomorrow and be back in business with no more cooling system issues.

I have the original 22 and 20 thermostats in my SC2s. If it don't seem broken, I'm not fixing it.

They always run better with the cams in time.
